or not to join a union. until tonight you had to join a union. >> eric: more interesting to that is that they closed school districts in and around the detroit area because teachers decided to protest instead of teaching the kids. >> gretchen: that is insane. especially when you think of snow days coming. in fact minnesota had 18 inches of snow and protestors that they can make it out of minnesota to get to state of michigan. now the kids are going to suffer? it is a repercussion of this? >> eric: what are the teachers teaching the kids by not showing up to work and protesting a right to work legislation that is passed legally and no tricks done. they vote add for a republican governor who said he would do that and he did do that. >> steve: kids will learn how teachers get a day off. calling in sick. talking about taylor, michigan. so many teachers called in sick superintendents said we'll take tomorrow off, kids. see you back here on wednesday. the president of the united states was in michigan and he said right to work thing, sure you have heard the stories about good w
in the back. this is a state of course that was built by labor unions, has one of the highest percentages of union membership anywhere in the country. a state known for its union support and a state that really has been -- saves by labor unions particularly the autoworkers agreeing to significant cutbacks and benefits and salaries and everything to keep the auto industry afloat. as part of the auto bailout. of course, this is just the latest in this war on unions that we've seen. it started with scott walker in wisconsin. went on to ohio. and john kasich, we've seen a lot of it out of florida. we've seen a lot of it with rick scott. we've seen a lot of it of course in new jersey with chris christie. particularly in the midwest there's been this blatant war on unions. the latest is rick schneider, a guy who was just recently elected who says the last thing he wanted oh, no, no, no, he said this publicly, privately we heard this yesterday from steve cook, head of the michigan education association was a guest
an extreme attack on core democratic policies. they are now pushing a far right agenda to go take down union rights and women's rights. we've seen this in wisconsin and ohio and virginia. now, it's in michigan. president obama went to an au auto-plan where he ripped the gop plan and crippled the state's labor unions. >> what we shouldn't be doing is taking away your rights to bargain for better wages. [ applause ] >> you know, these so called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics. what they're really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money. you only have to look to michigan where workers were instrumental in reviving the auto industry to see how unions have helped build not just the stronger middle class, but a stronger america. >> the president is right. it's not about economics. it is about politics. the state's republican governor, rick snyder, says he'll sign the right to work bill into law. even though he opposed this kind of anti-union push earlier this year. >> right to work is an issue that's a very dev
on conservative causes with a particular focus on anti-union measures in the states. labor unions played a big part in mr. adelson's conversion to democrat to republican kingmaker. he fought with members picketing outside his hotel in las vegas. he tried to fight them in court, until find the supreme court declined to take his case. in testimony for the nevada state ethics commission, future democratic congresswoman and unsuccessful candidate shelly berkeley said adelson had told her, "old democrats were with the union and he wanted to break the back of the union, subsequently he had to break the back of the democrats." that fight, the war with labor changed sheldon adelson from being just another social liberal on the sidelines of politics to sheldon adelson, contributor on an historic scale to republicans who do not share his social values and this goes to a fundamental truth about the republican party. which is that the republican party in its current incarnation is a coalition between missionaries and mercenaries. the republican party is made up of true believers who are really committed t
? a lot of pressure to keep the gravy train running. what if it runs unabated? the unions who legislated the president remind us every day in ads you owe us, mr. president. cut to the chase. no guts, no glory, for now. the risk of a bad deal over no deal. john, what do you think of that? >> well, the democrats, neil, obviously, are not interested in cutting at all. they hold entitlements out, even though they are completely broke, between medicare, medicaid, and social security. there's a hundred trillion dollars in unfunded entitlement liabilities. tax the rich a 100% for the next hundred years. they are intent on preserving them, extending them, and creating them, making them larger meaning bigger bills and government control. neil: can't they throw a bone to republicans, offer you at the gate, $800 billion in tax hikes? couldn't you throw it back at them, first thing offered, doubling the tax hikes, $1.6 trillion. a clumsy start from the get-go, but i don't see any proposals to match, not the republicans spelled out they get the hikes, but to match the effort to raise taxes. >> well,

that 25% of republicans want their state to secede from the union. do you believe this number? i am deeply convinced it's mainly in the south. and by the way, another 19% say they aren't so sure about secession. are these people meatheads or what? 44% of the republican party either does or might go along with ses secession. what do you want to bet these are the same people who say president obama is a muslim. just guessing. >>> he's outspoken, tough, irreverent, biting, funny, and very, very smart. he'll be insufferable now. barney frank entered congress at the start of the reagan revolution. he's leaving it as it begins to crumble, some say. the man from massachusetts joins us tonight. >>> finally, consider yourself warned, barack obama is a socialist leading the country to communism. that's the latest from the sage of wasilla, sarah palin. that's what she's still saying. and this is "hardball," the place for politics.

unions opposed the move, and last week, senator bernie sanders and several of his colleagues called on chairman genachowski to hold off. bernie sanders is an outspoken opponent of media consolidation. he sees it as a threat to democracy. once the mayor of burlington, vermont, he served 16 years in the house of representatives and was recently re-elected to his second term in the senate. he's the longest serving independent in the history of congress. he was in new york earlier this week and we met for this interview. welcome. good to see you again. >> good to be with you, bill. >> this is a strong letter, inspired one of your colleagues in the senate says, by you. what's the beef? >> what the chairmanf the fcc is now talking about is making a bad situation much worse by loosening up the cross-ownwnersp rules, which means now that a media giant, one of the big companies, whether it's murdoch's news corp. or anyone else, will be able to own major television stations, a newspaper, and radio stations within a given community. and that means people are jujus not going to be hearing diffe

their junk touched. big unions say the same, pat buchanan said it is hard to cut a deal, hen no one is cutting budget or slowing growth. that is reality. ratio now. 3 to 1 in favor of tax hikes over spending cuts. that is a best case scenario right now. >> well, the -- i remember ron aronald reagan in 1985, he said they promised me $3 in spending cuts for every one in spending cuts, they gave him opposite he felt he had been taken to the cleaners in the bill, in 1982, that was on his mind for the rest of his presidency, and republicans are headed into the same trap. neil: i think, there are a lot of people who don't like tax hikes, but president campaigned to hiking taxes on the wealthy, as much as i'm against it, it is going to happen. but if that a consequence, it is not, other consequence should not be you republicans losing your backbone and resolve on issues near to you, but they are folding on cheap suits on ooe issue after another, what gives? >> i think they realize, they have a gun to their head, they are told by the president, either you will give me an increase in tax rat

.6%. the three national unions have that come out with an ad campaign are targeting two senators. you are one of them. as well as two republican congressman as well. they are saying don't touch social security or medicare or other entitlements. would you be open to touching them in a deal? >> interest groups have every right to advocate but we've seen the lack of power that some of the negative attacks that were spent against a lot of candidates. i think medicare is a great program. it needs to be protected. but anyone that denies the math around these programs is just disconnected to reality. the fact is, when i was a kid, there were 16 people working for every one person on social security. today there are three. that is a benefit because that is a success of the program because people are living longer. but it does mean the math in terms of the amount people pay in versus what is coming out doesn't match up anymore. and we do need to reform social security separate from the deficit discussion. so security trust fund doesn't have anything to do with the debt and deficit. but the idea that w
